Past testimony regarding Momase Discoverer Tours.

"I very much enjoyed the trip to Wewak and the Sepik River area. Seeby was very helpful and it was so interesting to see how the river people live in comparison to the Highlands. A complete contrast in every way, including the weather (wow, very hot and humid), so I do feel that I have seen some of the most striking and vivid areas of PNG in the space of two short weeks." - Jane, Ireland.

" I enjoyed the Aseki Kuku-Kuku people very much. This encounter was an experience I will never forget." - McCormack - Sydney, Australia.
